Most flu cases this year are resistant to Tamiflu

Posted:

Researchers at the CDC say they have identified Tamiflu resistance in 98 percent of influenza "A" cases this flu season.  About 12 percent of cases were resistant last year.  In December the CDC recommended doctors take into account a patient's flu type before prescribing any treatment, and provided suggestions for medications other than Tamiflu.  They say flu activity is still relatively low this season, and so is the number of patients affected.
